Miss Worth by Worth: launched in 1977, it was created by Odette Breil-Radius of Roure.

Cosmopolitan, 1980:
"Very French, very feminine: Miss Worth perfume, the seductive new scent from the venerable house of Worth. The base is a classic French floral blend of rose, iris, jasmine, and labdanum . . . zinged up with the alluring, earthy notes of oakmoss, sandalwood and exotic spices."

It was available in the following:
  • ¼ oz Parfum Splash
  • ¼ oz Parfum Atomizer

  • 1 oz Eau de Parfum Spray
  • 2 oz Eau de Parfum Splash
  • 2 oz Eau de Parfum Spray

Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like? It is described as a light aldehydic floral perfume with a touch of sweetness and musk.
